Flame retardants are widely used in furniture, mattresses, carpets, electrical appliances and other common products. They are very light and difficult to volatilize and stay indoors. A recent study in the United States found that flame retardants may have unexpected effects on the initial development of children. Children's fight with flame retardants may cause behavior problems such as combativeness and compliance.

Previous studies have found that the two common types of flame retardants, polybrominated diphenyl ethers and organophosphorus based flame retardants, are related to the poor cognitive function of children. In addition to the latest research, researchers from the University of Oregon in the United States asked 92 children aged 3 to 5 to wear a wristband one after another. This kind of wristband can absorb out-of-state chemicals to track children’s resistance to war. The condition of the fuel. The research staff then screened the chemical substances collected by the wristband, and checked the questionnaires filled out by parents and teachers on children's behavior and family status.

Research staff are telling in the new issue of the British "Condition Hygiene" magazine that data analysis has found that all children will fight flame retardants. After removing the influence of family status, children who fight more organophosphorus flame retardants are more difficult to exhibit aggressive, submissive, hyperactive, distracted and abused behaviors. From the teacher's point of view, children who fight more PBDEs are not very arrogant.

Studying and telling the correspondent author, Molly Keldow of University of Oregon, they designed through further study to better understand the relationship between flame retardants and the development of children's social skills. If there is strong evidence that fighting with flame retardants will affect children's behavior, the relevant parties can formulate measures in public health to eliminate children fighting with flame retardants.
